mike lee, from rand paul, from et cetera, you don't hear them right now. as you said, they're making some noises about how we don't want to trade sequester cuts unless there's a firm guarantee amended mandatory spending cuts. we don't want the extension of unemployment insurance. but these are discussions of actual details of a possible budget plan, not the sort of throwing down the gauntlet kind of, we're going to shut the whole joint down, thing we were hearing. you're not hearing that at all. and i think at least temporarily the biggest names in the tea party -- there's 20 people in the house who signed that letter. frankly, those are the last drags in the bottom of the teacup. they don't mean a whole lot. it's the rand pauls, ted cruzs, mike lees who matter. and they are conspicuous by their silent at this point. >> despite all this talk about big government being evil, the people do miss it. the government once it ceases to be available it begins to look pretty good. anyway, you won't find much agreement in the republican party these days, but there is at least some consensus by
's pushed down. there is some secret new plan for paul ryan. anyway, the president's confronted the problems with the law's website. saying it would be vastly improved by december 1st which was yesterday. complaining about errors with registrations. but overall the president's fixer told reporters that it was night and day from where it was on october 1st. well, here's a look at what's been done. traffic problems are tremendously better than they were back in october. the site can now handle roughly 800,000 users every day. that's 800,000. more than two-thirds of the required repairs have been completed. that's a big number when you consider the fact that 600 problems were identified originally. and most importantly the website is far more stable. it's now fully functional more than 90% of the time. so here we have all this news. how's the republican party going to go on this though? they're going to attack the website. the website is beginning to work effectively. what are they going to attack next? >> i think they're going to keep attacking the idea of obama care. they're going to keep say
.s. congressman paul ryan of wisconsin are getting closer to a budget deal. but it won't be anything close to a grand bargain. but murray of the budget committee and ryan the republican chair of the house committee have until december 13th to reach a deal. that's next friday. and politico reports they're inching toward a small scale deal at least. to replace sequester cuts for the next two years. most importantly the deal could potentially reduce the threat of another government shutdown come january 2014. and we'll be right back after this. >>> this the working and will work into the future. my main message today is we're not going back. that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is let's just go back to the status quo because they haven't presented an alternative. i've always said i will work with anybody to improve this law effectively. you've got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> that's putting a lot in. that was the president on offense very much so today after weeks of dealing with negative headli
over there i remember meeting you with paul taylor. did you see all this coming from over there? could you sense this was all leading up to '94 were of course. what do you think made de klerk make the decision that things had to change? >> look, i think sanctions were the right thing to do when they sent a message. and they made some difference. but sanctions were not what convinced de klerk to change course and become the bargaining partner that mandela needed. there were at least two other more important factors. one of them was the south africans themselves organized by the allies set out to make the country in their word ungovernable and they pretty much succeeded. and de klerk realized genie was out of the bottle. he could not put it back in. and the only question was how are they going to navigate the surrender. the other thing is communism collapsed. you know, the south africans enjoyed the support of those people solely because they were posturing against communist influence in africa. when the soviet union collapsed and china went capitalist, i think f.w. de klerk realized the
